BANGALORE, India, Dec. 27 (UPI) -- Bangalore is now a high-profile target for terrorist, an Indian press source warned Wednesday.
The warning came only two days after Indian police in the capital New Delhi foiled a terrorist plot to strike at Bangalore's IT companies, The Special Cell of the Delhi Police arrested three suspects in the case, Newindpress.com reported.
However, this success in India's war on terror was only the latest in a chain of such alerts, the Web site said.
The Special Cell of the Delhi police had busted a gang of Lashkar-e-Toiba terrorists earlier this year, and revealed a plot to target software establishments in Bangalore, it said. Then, according to the Delhi police, the terrorists had apparently visited Bangalore and studied the layout of a software firm.
Any attack in Bangalore would make headlines everywhere because of the city's role as a hub for IT companies like Infosys and Wipro. Many vital defence establishments are located in Bangalore including ISRO, the DRDO labs, Air Force Establishments (the IAF Training Command is headquartered here), HAL, BEL and BHEL, the Web site said.
